p38 value and dating?

I have a walther p38 pistol I am trying to find out information on in order to find the value of my gun. On barrel it says P. 38 AC 43 and serial number is 8349b. All serial numbers on gun match and is in original shape. Fires great and has swastika on other side of barrel with numbers 359 under the symbols. Can anyone give me any information on this gun?

Your pistol was made at the Walther plant in Zella-Mehlis in either February or March of 1943, one of 150,000 P.38s turned out by Walther during that year.

Some of the threads in the FAQ section of this part of the forum may be of interest to you ... these two, for example:

More P.38 info

Placing a value on your firearm is another rmatter entirely. Too many factors go into determining value, from it's overall mechanical condition to the percentage of remaining blue to whether the magazine(s) are correct and match to ... well, the factors are almost too numerous to count. This thead may come in handy:

'What should I pay for it?' and 'How much is this worth' questions? Start here

Feel free to post up some photos of your pistol. It may tell us a thing or two. This might help:


That should keep you busy for a while.

Welcome to the forum; enjoy your time here.

Here are some pictures of my p38. I hope this helps! I double checked to make sure all parts had matching numbers and they do.
